Things to do in Philadelphia that you can’t miss!



Take iconic pictures in iconic spots 

First of all, you must visit the Liberty Bell. It has become a symbol of American independence and although it does not ring anymore, it rings freedom to people around the world. Located in Independence National Historical Park, a picture with this iconic cracked bell is a big part of visiting Philadelphia. 

 

Second, if you ever watch the movie “Rocky”, a picture of you running up the Rocky Steps and imitating the Rocky Statue’s pose is iconic for Rocky fans. Situated in Philadelphia Museum of Art, the movie has done so much that tourists flock here to climb up the 72 steps to the entrance of the museum. Who knows, maybe you can be featured in the next Hollywood movie homages Rocky!

 

Try the famous Philly Cheesesteak

Three words that describe this dish: Philly, cheese, steak. There are numerous spots to get your hands on one of these delicious dishes but we recommend you head down to Market Street to try local’s favourites. Make sure not to wear white or your favourite shirt though, as things might get messy! 

 

Visit various museums on Benjamin Franklin Parkway

Packed with cultural museums including Philadelphia Museum of Art and The Franklin Institute, this whole area is a must explore for those who love to learn and educate themselves in culture and science. Aside from visiting museums and institutions, you can also enjoy the scenery of this Philly version of Paris’ Champs-Élysées or enjoy the peaceful Boathouse Row just minutes from the Parkway.

 

You can pretty much explore most of Philadelphia’s favourite tourist spots by foot - which makes the experience so much better! To make the most of your time here, we recommend getting a pass that you can choose based on the attractions you want to go to, or an all-inclusive pass for up to 5 days.
